According to El Desmarque, Valencia wanted an option to buy inserted into their loan deal for Bryan Gil but Tottenham made it clear such a clause would be ‘very high’.

Gil completed a loan move to Valencia on transfer deadline day, just six months on from arriving at Spurs from Sevilla.

The 20-year-old has had a promising start to his time at the Mestalla, starring Valencia’s 2-1 win over Cadiz as well as in their 0-0 draw against Real Sociedad. 

El Desmarque now explain that the winger was so keen to move to Valencia that he rejected two other offers from La Liga clubs, who were willing to pay him a higher salary than Los Che were. 

In fact, the report adds that the salary offered to Gil by these clubs was even higher than what he earns at Tottenham but the player had his heart set on joining Valencia.

It is asserted the Spain international personally told Antonio Conte that he wanted to join Jose Bordalas’ side on loan.

Valencia are thought to have asked Spurs to include a permanent clause in the loan deal but the North London club allegedly told them that any such clause would be ‘very high’.

It is understandable why Gil would have wanted to leave on loan move as he had to play regularly in order to give himself a chance of making Spain’s squad for the World Cup in Qatar.

The fact that Spurs were not willing to include a permanent clause in the loan deal suggests that Conte believes that the 20-year-old can be an important player for us in the future.
